San Jose – rink no longer updating their cancellation calendar

Hi All – we need someone willing to contact San Jose rink management regularly at the end of each month – (408) 279-6000 -to prod them into posting a cancellation calendar. The rink employee who used to do that for the skating community has moved on. I think the San Jose rink has forgotten that there are members of the skating community who drive more than an hour each way to attend their sessions.  Its lousy to show up at the rink expecting a workout and find out its cancelled. The rink knows more than a month ahead of time what their schedule is and they should be considerate and post it! Please respond to info@norcalspeedskating.org if you can contact the rink and bug them about this. Thank you.
